Sony Tokyo Game Show 2016 conference live report Finished

Just days after the New York PlayStation meeting, Sony is ready to kick off the 2016 Tokyo Game Show week with its traditional press conference. Will PlayStation Pro and PlayStation VR help the fortunes of console gaming in the region? Will Sony's Japanese studios and publishing partners have any surprises in store? Will the The Last Guardian show its face following its delay?

To give you some idea what to expect, last year's conference saw the announcements of Gravity Rush 2, a Bloodborne expansion and Umbrella Corps; the reappearance of Nioh; and the naming of PlayStation VR. We wouldn't be surprised to see the likes of Dragon Quest and Persona make an appearance.

Tune it at 8am UK time (9am central European time, midnight Pacific time, 3am Eastern or 4pm in Japan) for the news. You can watch the conference with English interpretation in the streaming video below, and though we won't be at the press conference ourselves this year, we'll be watching and commenting along with you.

    Was a bit weird in the opening Sony Rap hearing Land of hope and glory being used in it. As its mostly used as the England national anthem. :D
  • lukej 1 year ago

    @mrtomftw any way you can get the live updates switched to ascending instead of descending? It seems odd to have to scroll down to the bottom to see updates. Also, highlighting key information with a background colour would be helpful for people who want to scan.
  • midoro 1 year ago

    so many games, not that much time to play :(
  • SpaceMonkey77 1 year ago

    @BadmobsThanks for the heads up, while there wasn't much. My oversleeping might have been a good thing.I think we all just want the big NX reveal.
  • Malek86 1 year ago

    Well this was a pretty by-the-numbers conference. Except for Kojima and his bullcrap... I mean, deep development insight.But they didn't announce anything I really wanted, so I'm not too satisfied myself.
  • SpaceMonkey77 1 year ago

    A bit bleak out there. Hope there's more at TGS.
  • Baddamobs 1 year ago

    Thanks as always Oli: great work!
  • Sora888 1 year ago

    Shiny new Red Vita. Reckon I will be getting an import of that one :)
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    @oliwelsh best news is the overly long explanation and the justification of the strands in Death Stranding title
  • Baddamobs 1 year ago

    @pomi Hell yea.
  • pomi 1 year ago

    Was worth it just for the Nioh release date.
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    looking forward to DF and Eurogamer to investigate Death Stranding Engine! :D
  • killemoff 1 year ago

    And that's a wrap!
  • Malek86 1 year ago

    I think I actually spotted The Last Guardian in there.
  • Baddamobs 1 year ago

    That's a pretty sick advert, though.
  • Baddamobs 1 year ago

    Ehhh, not Sony's strongest. I guess they're saving the best for Tokyo Game show?
  • Sora888 1 year ago

    Finally... A TV ad!
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    nooooooooooooo its ending
  • joshgallimore 1 year ago

    Wow, a TV commercial? Sony you shouldn't have.
  • Sora888 1 year ago

    Was that a release date for Gravit Rush 2?!
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    wait, he likes monopoly as a game that tells him how the society works?ouch
  • killemoff 1 year ago

    Sounded like Gravity Rush is Japan only?

  • Malek86 1 year ago

    Three games for 1000 yen, or 1000 yen for each?
  • Sora888 1 year ago

    Ł7 for God of war, KillZone and Watchdogs
  • grassyknoll 1 year ago

    @Baddamobs It has the potential to be one of the strongest quarters for gaming of all time. I'm going to be Ł200 poorer though. :(
  • Baddamobs 1 year ago

    @LukehMuse Oh no she didn't cough!!! D:
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    @malek86 make fake japan PSN :D
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    the Playstation boss talk is prbably scripted so the tranlator should be able to relax a wee bit.he also talks in nice tempo :D
  • Malek86 1 year ago

    Ohh, we're getting PS4 demos of the TGS titles??... only for Plus subscribers in Japan, I bet. *pouts*
  • LukehMuse 1 year ago

    I think she just coughed 'Help me'. English narrator, cough twice if you are SAFE.
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    surely its limited to japan :(
  • Sora888 1 year ago

    "I have to switch back to serious mode" that translator is brill! XD

  • Rexter2k 1 year ago

  • seasidebaz 1 year ago

    Kids playing Gran Turismo? They'll be in their 30s when it comes out
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

  • Samael_Blackwing 1 year ago

    Kids playing Gran Turismo... that's a bit surprising seeing as it won't be released until 2026
  • Mazzle 1 year ago

    It'll affirm your life goddamnit
  • Samael_Blackwing 1 year ago

    @The_One_True_QIt'll be UbiArt. I'm calling it!
  • MrTomFTW 1 year ago

    @superfurry and playable at EGX next week I believe :D
  • Damn_Skippy 1 year ago

    'btw, Kojima Productions is now releasing a F2P mobile game about connecting rope.'
  • manapause 1 year ago

  • superfurry 1 year ago

    That Dragon Quest Builders looks really good.
  • Sora888 1 year ago

    We have seen more Vita in this presentation that Sony's past 2 E3 shows!
  • FrostedSloth 1 year ago

    We're gonna need a montage........MONTAGE!
  • dopeonthetable 1 year ago

    That had the feeling of someone creating a distraction while his mates made off with a van load of PSVRs.
  • smemma 1 year ago

    @Devil_N Testify!
  • tomphillipsEG 1 year ago

    PlayStation Home!
  • Baddamobs 1 year ago

    Ehh, guess it would have been a bit of ask for game play at this point, to be fair.
  • SpaceMonkey77 1 year ago

    I haven't missed much then?
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    Kojima consider his studio as INDIE STUDIO :D :D hopefully this means he can do lots of weird, super weird stuff, super unconventional stuff
  • MrTomFTW 1 year ago

    Death... Stranding?
  • Devil_N 1 year ago

    I kind of wish Kojima would stop over-explaining everything and just let his games and his stories speak for themselves.
  • Samael_Blackwing 1 year ago

    The UbiArt engine?
  • smemma 1 year ago

    so Del Toro is in the game?! That cartoon looked an awful lot like him
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    the game is made with new engine specially for this. It will have HDR blahblah something.we are indie studio that fight the world in AAA market.
  • liquidsoap89 1 year ago

    "Indie"
  • Sora888 1 year ago

    They have an office and a game engine. Don't expect this until at least 2020
  • joshgallimore 1 year ago

    Club Kojima sounds dope
  • Rexter2k 1 year ago

    Ok so Kojima is making a grim dark Nobi Nobi Boy?
  • Samael_Blackwing 1 year ago

    Metal gear was stealth action.This genre will be called exhibitionist action? Or will you eventually get clothes in the game?
  • manapause 1 year ago

    She's just reading from a sheet
  • Malek86 1 year ago

    Translator lady: "if you people are going to have this guy on stage again next year, I'll call it quits!"
  • superfurry 1 year ago

    What if WE'RE the club?!?!
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    @samael_blackwing the english stream translation is more confusing lol
  • manapause 1 year ago

    One translator down
  • MrTomFTW 1 year ago

    To be fair to orangelupa, the lady translating on the stream is clearly having a nightmare with Koj as well.
  • superfurry 1 year ago

    Open world, online, whales, dolphins, Norman Reedus and dead babies.Yay Kojima.
  • Samael_Blackwing 1 year ago

    @orangpelupa - as oli said: just hit refresh!
  • Malek86 1 year ago

    Only Kojima could spend five minutes at a games conference to talk about etymology.Good ol' Kojima.
  • Devil_N 1 year ago

    Always nice to get a lesson in etymology from Hideo Kojima.
  • Rexter2k 1 year ago

    "There's strands hanging from 'Strading' GET IT?"
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    "the blood in the title is a strand that connects with everything" okay... its a nanomachine then?
  • smemma 1 year ago

    So glad Kojima is here to spend 20 minutes defining the word 'stranding'
  • Sora888 1 year ago

    Oh, and a poster
  • Sora888 1 year ago

    Thanks for the explanation around the game title.. I guess that's all we're seeing
  • Mazzle 1 year ago

    Hooi boy are the translators going to have a nightmare with Kojima
  • Samael_Blackwing 1 year ago

    I bet he'll announce another game that turns out to be the same game as Death Stranding and then not being called Death stranding as it turns out Norman Reedus is the new Naked Snake.
  • superfurry 1 year ago

    Wales? Dolphins? Is it a Southpark game?
  • manapause 1 year ago

    KOJ appears, stream dies...

  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    kojimaaaaa
  • Baddamobs 1 year ago

    @SpaceMonkey77 Nioh's release date (February 9th 2017), Jpop Resident Evil (I don't get it either), a lot of VR and Jpop rap. No, I'm not kidding.
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    @mrtomftw Japanese games titles FTW!!!
  • PeruggiaUK 1 year ago

    Granblue is plenty popular in the west too. It has an official English translation.
  • Meho 1 year ago

    @Samael_Blackwing He may want to reconsider that for his NX appearance. It's 2017, you know!
  • Samael_Blackwing 1 year ago

    Ewww... social.That's not very gamer-friendly.
  • MrTomFTW 1 year ago

    Don't you just love Japanese game titles? They are the BEST.
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    can connect between phone game and ps4 game
  • Rexter2k 1 year ago

    Wait, its a port of a mobile game? LOL
  • superfurry 1 year ago

    Jesus, the Japanese game development space is really in a bad place. From being industry leaders 10 years ago, they're a weird after thought now.
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    Granblue Re Link called as "high end action RPG"weird marketing buzzword
  • SpaceMonkey77 1 year ago

    Sleepy headed me. got up late from arting last night, what have I missed, guys?
  • Samael_Blackwing 1 year ago

    @MehoLink's not talking.
  • pomi 1 year ago

    That looked pretty nice
  • Oniken 1 year ago

    They never show the ingame menus when they do RPG trailers. That's the stuff that gets RPG fans excited though :(
  • Fudce 1 year ago

    with the anime coming up, a true RPG was inevitable
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    2018? O_O thats still so far
  • G-Lord 1 year ago

    I sure hope P* has the capacity...
  • VashNL 1 year ago

    Granblue by Platinum, nice! :D
  • Meho 1 year ago

    Re: Link - we need to talk. About NX I mean...
  • Rexter2k 1 year ago

    Japan is totally into the "Re:" thing.
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    Probably Platinum games now have thousands of employee?
  • Baddamobs 1 year ago

    Looks pretty good.

    Giant enemy crab!
  • Mazzle 1 year ago

    Look at all the RPG's you'll never have mwahahha - Sony Insider
  • Baddamobs 1 year ago

    How many games is Platinum working on?!
  • Fudce 1 year ago

    Granblue Fantasy?
  • MrTomFTW 1 year ago

    You'd think they'd still want to be telling people why they should be excited about VR though, and how PS is the place to be for it. Initial demand is one thing, but they need it to have legs.
  • Samael_Blackwing 1 year ago

    @Oli Another Platinum - konami collaboration?
  • Meho 1 year ago

    Oooh, a combat game, who could have expected that?
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    @sora888 what do they mean by hub? just a special app that merge all those he mentioned?
  • Sora888 1 year ago

    How many projects does Platinum have going on atm?!
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    platinum!
  • Resurrected-X460 1 year ago

  • VashNL 1 year ago

    Hey Oli, remember that extreeeeeeme Konami presentation? :p
  • Sora888 1 year ago

    Kid friendly hub for films, games, comic and anime. Nice move! Hopefully we see something like this in the west
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    Star Kids project from Sony Group will be... what?
  • Samael_Blackwing 1 year ago

    TV, TV, TV.No 4K bluray player though. Because nobody plays media on a console: but look at all these streaming methods!
  • Meho 1 year ago

    But at least Martin knew not to bother - this is a suit show, no nipples on display whatsoever...
  • Scimarad 1 year ago

    @Malek86Yeah, but if it bombs you want get anything to play on it...
  • Sora888 1 year ago

    Did we not learn from Microsoft's mistakes? XD
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    @mrtomftw and its getting sold out everywhere, real fast. My national retailer was sold out in 10 minutes! yeesh
  • Meho 1 year ago

    So... will they come out and say: "that The Last Guardian delay we mentioned? We were kidding, it's out NOW!!!!!" I mean, that's one way to end on a high note...
  • Sora888 1 year ago

    Sony doing television!
  • Malek86 1 year ago

    @Oniken I hope PSVR bombs so I can pick one up much cheaper in a few months.
  • MrTomFTW 1 year ago

    Hey, at least they're talking about VR. They've been awfully quiet on the subject considering the headset is out soon.
  • Dismiss 1 year ago

    Looks like people will be able to scan their mugs in specially created videos? Dunno.
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    Cmon, wheres ace combat 7?
  • Oniken 1 year ago

    I hope PSVR is a success so I can pick one up in a few months when there are games for it.

    Relax your eyes... by putting lit screens right in front of them!Sure, that'll help with stress :p
  • Stefarno 1 year ago

    PlayStation VR feels like something that they put too much money into to cancel.
  • Sora888 1 year ago

    Ok, I'm sold on VR now XD
  • Malek86 1 year ago

    The only way to save this conference would be if Morita now suddenly pointed at the crowd and said "but, do you undersyand the CONCEPT OF LOVE", and then a new Jet Set Radio is announced

    Pop rock and school girls. Welcome to PSVR.

  • Meho 1 year ago

    So, this is the part where they try to convince young people that music videos are best watched in VR rather than streamed form youtube on your phone, yes?
  • Devil_N 1 year ago

    Resident Evil J-Pop crossover wut?

    Seems like everyone has already forgotten about Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman!Granted, it was a PSP game, but still.

    To buy Summer Love in the UK you have to put your name on a list.No, not a pre-order list...

    @Samael_Blackwing I played that Dynasty Warriors that was on Xbox GWG last month for a few hours. They've really not improved.
  • Meho 1 year ago

    I love it how they put "Human Interaction" on a video where a vurtial girl tries to be all businesslike but seductive at the same time. Sure, VR is where I go for my human interaction.

    bah Smmer lesson
  • Malek86 1 year ago

    @Samael_Blackwings I tried Warriors Orochi 3 and it was still bad
  • Meho 1 year ago

    Yeah,a family on a couch, all rocking PSVR headsets, that's a sight we will not see any time soon outside commercials.
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    ace combat!
  • Nemesis 1 year ago

    PSVR sex noises.
  • Samael_Blackwing 1 year ago

    And Mr.Tom, perhaps you should try Hyrule warriors. They certainly made loads of improvements since the PS2-era of Musou games
  • Rexter2k 1 year ago

    oh wow
  • Samael_Blackwing 1 year ago

    The western name should be:Konami all-stars warriors
  • Meho 1 year ago

    VR time.
  • MrTomFTW 1 year ago

    The problem with Musou games is that they're not very good. At all.
  • Malek86 1 year ago

    Which, in the words of Genos, is like saying "a round circle".
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    has Ace Combat 7 been shown? Or i missed it when the stream was borked?
  • MrTomFTW 1 year ago

    Hahaha, seems my comment was painfully right :D
  • Scimarad 1 year ago

    That looked like Everything Musou.

  • Meho 1 year ago

    So I assume Danganronpa is still on Vita and this is why they had that Vita stunt a couple od minutes ago. Because otherwise people would be like: where can we play this?
  • orangpelupa 1 year ago

    hmm? The hero voice actor is a woman despite the hero is male? (Danganronpa v3)

    @Destiny-v It is, they announced it on Twitter and it's being shown on the show floor in leaked footage (just seen it).
  • Samael_Blackwing 1 year ago

    @goneski That's pretty unlikely, considering Rockstar is a western publisher and RDR isn't nearly as popular in Asia as it is in the west.Furthermore, they don't usually show up during press conferences.

An NX reveal may very well happen in the next two days before TGS kicks off. Perhaps a Direct tomorrow, followed by a livestream of the GameStop Expo on Wednesday? Have EG heard anything??

  • grassyknoll 1 year ago

    @IronSoldier Here's some numbers from price drop weeks (number in brackets from week before):playStation 4 ? 46,177 (4,071)PlayStation Vita ? 62,543 (11,456)I don't want to waste my time talking to you, was only saying don't expect PS4 Pro much (in a very benign manner), this is where portables are king. Companies like Falcom, Vanillaware, Namco, Tri-Ace etc focus on art design, not graphics.

    Nier Automata, need I say more?
  • grassyknoll 1 year ago

    @IronSoldier All I'm saying is don't expect much on PS4 Pro or graphic intensive games, it's just not that kind of show. It'll be about the PS4 price drop and lots of midtier games. Please don't engage me in some idiotic pissing contest (You'll probably not like it, they just show games here).
  • andrewcunningham 1 year ago

    More Persona 5 gameplay, long shot but some information about Kingdom Hearts 3. And an even longer shot, Bloodborne 2
  • Bratterz 1 year ago

    I'm really hoping they finally reveal the PS4 Slim.
  • grassyknoll 1 year ago

    @IronSoldier TGS really isn't that kind of show, it's going to be predominantly midtier Japanese titles. PS4 Slim is going to be front and centre (as Japan more than any country is very price sensitive).
  • grassyknoll 1 year ago

    Incredibly excited about TGS this year, lots of potentially great stuff coming from so many studios that I can't even start to write them all down. My top 5 wishes: Devil May Cry 5, more on Sentinels 13, Gravity Rush 2, Y's 8 and perhaps a look at From's new titles.
  • grassyknoll 1 year ago

    @AnsemsApprentice It's TGS, no one is going to be talking about PC there, it makes up about 0.3% of the gaming market.
  • grassyknoll 1 year ago

    @Vert1go You do realise that a third of the world is asleep no matter when a games show is shown don't you?
  • vert1go 1 year ago

    Sony catering to that worldwide audience with an appropriate time as ev... Oh.
  • AnsemsApprentice 1 year ago

    I'd love a decent chunk of new Persona 5, KH3, and Nioh gameplay. The new Nier, also.Long shots: Some new Deep Down footage; FF7 remake footage; an announcement for Yakuza games coming to PC, perhaps.Extra long shot: Mickey's Wild Adventure remake with the original included in remastered form!

Our live coverage has now ended. Here's what you missed: Updating...

17:46 By Oli Welsh

Hello! What are your hopes for tomorrow? I'd be pretty happy with a solid hour of Persona 5 gameplay, to be honest.

17:47 By Oli Welsh

Very little chance, I'm afraid. Nintendo typically don't exhibit at TGS (although it's true they unveiled the Will remote a few days before the show once).

smallblueslime says:

Any chance the Nintendo NX will be revealed in Tokyo?

07:57 By Oli Welsh

Morning all!

07:58 By Oli Welsh

If you've come for Martin's trademark overexcited nipple commentary, I'm sorry to disappoint you. He can't make it today. Probably best for this time in the morning, to be honest.

08:00 By Oli Welsh

This is probably going to be a more sober affair anyway. Though, that said, you can't get any more sober than the funereal reveal of PS4 Pro last week.

08:00 By Oli Welsh

Then behave.

MrTomFTW says:

I'll have you know Martin cribbed the nipple thing from me.

08:02 By Oli Welsh

We're off with a rap montage!

08:03 By Oli Welsh

Gravity Rush 2, Battlefield, Yakuza, COD. Lego Star Wars!

08:04 By Oli Welsh

This is already 800 times more exciting than the entire PlayStation Meeting.

08:04 By Oli Welsh

Ah, World of Final Fantasy. The game even Final Fantasy megafans think is a bit gauche.

08:05 By Oli Welsh

Was that Land of Hope and Glory at the end there?

08:06 By Oli Welsh

Atsushi Morita, president of SCEJ is doing the intro, showing off the new PS4 models and the winter line-up.

08:07 By Oli Welsh

Aha, the HDR system software update is out today!

08:07 By Oli Welsh

Man, to be Japanese right now. Persona 5 out THIS WEEK.

08:08 By Oli Welsh

Final Fantasy 15. This game is so important in Japan. PS4 might be a roaring success in the rest of the world but the whole console market is stagnant there, and the hope is FF15 will be the game to kickstart it.

08:09 By Oli Welsh

Game director Tabata is here, manhandling a FF15-branded PS4.

08:11 By Oli Welsh

We got our PS4 Slim in the office yesterday, by the way. It's actually really nice.

08:12 By Oli Welsh

"We want to enliven and activise Japan through Final Fantasy" - there it is.

08:13 By Oli Welsh

I doubt Pro is going to get a big push in Japan. The console generation isn't really mature enough there.

Sora888 says:

Special edition Slimline but not Pro? Interesting..

08:14 By Oli Welsh

SaGa Scarlet Grace is out in December on Vita. It looks pretty.

08:14 By Oli Welsh

New Vita colours! Japan hasn't given up on the handheld it seems.

08:14 By Oli Welsh

I'll have the blue pls.

08:15 By Oli Welsh

Somebody shouted GO GO GO, I guess this is Call of Duty.

08:15 By Oli Welsh

Is it wrong of me to think this game looks quite cool.

08:17 By Oli Welsh

Watch Dogs 2 now. Also looking alright.

08:18 By Oli Welsh

Oh dear.

08:18 By Oli Welsh

Mean.

Malek86 says:

The stream stopped and started buffering on the Ubisoft logo, I guess that's only fitting.

08:18 By Oli Welsh

Good intel!

Stefarno says:

In Japan the Vita has still sold more than the PS4 has (5.1m vs 3.1m).

08:20 By Oli Welsh

This stream's still working, but it's in Japanese: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_5k0a0tkLY

08:21 By Oli Welsh

We're getting a history lesson of Gundam games right now.

08:21 By Oli Welsh

Our hero!

ill translate on the fly some important bits from JP stream

08:22 By Oli Welsh

Gundam Versus!

08:24 By Oli Welsh

Kingdom Hearts montage. Aha, it's the brilliantly named HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue.

08:24 By Oli Welsh

Platinum... this must be Nier?

08:25 By Oli Welsh

English stream is back for me.

08:25 By Oli Welsh

Nice timing, Tom.

tomphillipsEG says:

Page now updated with Japanese stream - hit refresh to replace.

08:27 By Oli Welsh

Although, there's no evidence of English translation on this stream since it came back, but never mind because EVERYBODY IS GOLF.

08:28 By Oli Welsh

Out summer 2017.

08:28 By Oli Welsh

Oh my god, EDF.

08:29 By Oli Welsh

Never change, EDF.

08:29 By Oli Welsh

EDF5 in 2017. How do they make them look so rubbish? It must take actual effort.

08:30 By Oli Welsh

Something with Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy and dice.

08:30 By Oli Welsh

And we're back with the English translation on the English stream.

08:31 By Oli Welsh

It's a board game called Fortune Street. It's to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the two series.

08:31 By Oli Welsh

Here's someone from Koei Tecmo and he is rocking an amazing jacket and hairstyle combo.

08:32 By Oli Welsh

Kou Shibusawa, I salute you and your black-on-black zebra stripe tuxedo and your Osmonds hair.

08:32 By Oli Welsh

Nioh time. Out February 9th 2017 WORLDWIDE.

08:33 By Oli Welsh

10 years in the making. Rather looking forward to that one.

08:33 By Oli Welsh

Ninja Gaiden... Musou?

08:34 By Oli Welsh

Coming in 2017. Looks like a Hyrule Warriors style crossover effort.

08:35 By Oli Welsh

Ah, it's an all-star Koei Tecmo game called Musou Stars.

08:35 By Oli Welsh

PSVR now.

08:36 By Oli Welsh

BURN THE HERETIC. Actually I've never played one.

MrTomFTW says:

The problem with Musou games is that they're not very good. At all.

08:37 By Oli Welsh

Simple but effective PSVR trailer there.

08:37 By Oli Welsh

Now we're in a student girl's bedroom, in VR.

08:38 By Oli Welsh

Summer Lesson. I feel awkward.

08:39 By Oli Welsh

Next it's a Japan Studio game, with Acquire... What's this?

08:40 By Oli Welsh

Dioramas of little monsters fighting fantasy heroes, with a devilish master leaning over the scene... Don't know what that was but it looked cool, perfect for VR.

08:41 By Oli Welsh

Actually an Aoife stream is a brilliant idea. Can you imagine the swearing.

orangpelupa says:

@oli welsh dont worry. Play it. Everybody will be judging you (or just let Aoife or Ian livestream Summer lesson? :p )

08:42 By Oli Welsh

I'm afraid I've no idea what's happening right now. Something to do with VR, music videos and Biohazard.

08:43 By Oli Welsh

The band was L'Arc-en-Ciel - they're making a Biohazard music video that will be filmed in VR.

08:44 By Oli Welsh

Lots more 360-degree music videos.

08:46 By Oli Welsh

A stressed lady is relaxing in VR beauty spots... using a pop-up smartphone display. It's called Anywhere VR.

08:46 By Oli Welsh

Nice idea, but that smartphone mirrored screen is going to be seriously low-res.

08:47 By Oli Welsh

There'll be extra preorders available in Japan from 24th September.

Now some streaming services for the Japanese market, including a sports stream.

08:49 By Oli Welsh

PlayStation Now coming to Japanese PC users on the 20th September.

This is like an E3 conference from 5 years ago. It's actually making me nostalgic for them.

08:50 By Oli Welsh

This is true, it might seem quiet around PSVR but they really don't need to be selling it right now. It will be quite a while before production catches up with demand.

@mrtomftw and its getting sold out everywhere, real fast. My national retailer was sold out in 10 minutes! yeesh

08:51 By Oli Welsh

Here's a new Platinum game! In collaboration with a smartphone game developer, sounds like?

08:52 By Oli Welsh

Standard issue JRPG stuff, looks like.

08:53 By Oli Welsh

GranBlue Fantasy: Project Re:Link. Coming in 2018.

08:54 By Oli Welsh

GranBlue Fantasy is a popular social RPG for smartphones in Japan.

08:55 By Oli Welsh

Smartphone gaming virtually killed consoles in Japan, so it's significant to see a big phone property moving to PS4.

08:56 By Oli Welsh

KOJ

08:56 By Oli Welsh

Here to not tell us anything substantive about Death Stranding, I expect.

08:57 By Oli Welsh

Nice eyewear, as ever.

08:58 By Oli Welsh

The English stream is back, you know...

orangpelupa says:

woa whoa kojima! talk slower! my japanese too shitty. thats too fast

08:58 By Oli Welsh

It's an open world with a degree of freedom, some online elements, the genre is action. I don't think any of this is new.

Malek86 says:

Only Kojima could spend five minutes at a games conference to talk about etymology.Good ol' Kojima.

08:59 By Oli Welsh

Now we're getting a history lesson in action games.

09:00 By Oli Welsh

He's offering a future in which players are connected by a strand or rope-like element instead of hitting each other with clubs. Okay.

09:00 By Oli Welsh

Ooh, they've picked their engine. Wonder what they went for.

superfurry says:

What if WE'RE the club?!?!

09:01 By Oli Welsh

That would be AMAZING.

Rexter2k says:

Ok so Kojima is making a grim dark Nobi Nobi Boy?

09:01 By Oli Welsh

More info on the 18th at Tokyo Game Show.

09:02 By Oli Welsh

Montage time.

09:03 By Oli Welsh

Kids playing Gran Turismo, Dragon Quest Builders. I don't know what's happening but the music tells me it's uplifting.

09:03 By Oli Welsh

It's a new festival event held in Japan - first one was in July this year.

09:06 By Oli Welsh

The events, called PlayStation Matsuri, are coming to four more cities.

09:07 By Oli Welsh

There are some TGS promotions happening on Plus and the PlayStation Store in Japan.

09:09 By Oli Welsh

Wrapping up now. Mortia-san is telling us how board games and manga and Dragon Quest taught him what adults didn't. It's all very sweet.

09:10 By Oli Welsh

(The Gravity Rush news was that the first game is coming free to PS Plus in Japan ahead of Gravity Rush 2's release over there in December.)

09:10 By Oli Welsh

Closing out with their big holiday TV ad.

09:11 By Oli Welsh

And we're done. Nothing new from From. Boooo.

09:13 By Oli Welsh

Best news for us lot was probably Nioh's worldwide date in February, and of course the announcement of EDF5.

09:14 By Oli Welsh

But with PS4 so weak in Japan, it's to be expected that the Japanese industry does all its big announcements at E3 and other Western shows.

09:14 By Oli Welsh

Anyway, thanks for joining us this morning! Now: coffee. Catch you later.
